Handsome Hats is a local business much loved by many. It's exactly the kind of small business that deserves support through this crisis.

by Sarah in London, England, United Kingdom

Handsome Hats is a much-coveted business in central London. We create hats and fascinators for weddings and formal occasions as well as running engaging workshops within the community. Our style is classic, elegant and timeless with a focus on a truly personalised service. As a female entrepreneur and the founder of the business I am extremely proud at how far we've come in three years, even having a hat worn at the Royal Wedding!

This year with the support of our loyal base of friends and fans, we celebrated our third anniversary and only a few months later, we are fighting for survival.

The current global Coronavirus pandemic is hitting everyone hard and sadly our small business is not eligible for any government cash grants. Being an independent retailer in the fashion industry, means the possibly of a loan in the current climate is also not conceivable. I have put everything into this business and built it up from nothing, with your support we will get through this crisis and comeback stronger than ever to supply glamorous hats to the ladies of London.  I hope you too will believe that Handsome Hats is a business worth saving and that you will be able to contribute to our Pay It Forward Crowdfunder. No donation is too small and anything you are able to contribute during this difficult time would be gratefully appreciated.

For us, the most important part of our business is the people.

Supporting our Pay It Forward Crowdfunder will help us to:

  • Pay our suppliers and support livelihoods. Many of the suppliers we work with are small businesses themselves who are also struggling. Being able to pay them in a timely fashion at this crucial point would be invaluable to them and us.
  • When it is safe to do so, help us to reopen the doors of our business as soon as we can after this crisis. Shop small, shop local and support local businesses.
  • We are building a business for the future that benefits the local neighbourhood and the British economy whilst being sustainable and ethical.

We are unique and independent

We strongly believe it’s the people that make a business. We are a business that listens and offers expert advice in person or online, whether it be in respect of a hat fitting or in a workshop setting. We want to continue to offer the amazing service and support that our clients have come to know and love.

We offer beautiful products with a bespoke service as well as engaging workshops where you can learn the skills need to create a fascinator hat for yourself.

Whether you want to offer a small donation, pay it forward by purchasing a voucher now to redeem later, or to invest in a small business you believe in, we would greatly appreciate your support. No contribution is too small.  Everything that is in your power to give, even just sharing this campaign with others would be hugely appreciated.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to support us during this difficult period.
